When using Google Chrome, often the statement appears:
“The following plug-in has crashed : Shockwave Flash”
What does it mean? And what should I do now?
I am so sick of the almost daily routine of having to deal w/shockwave flash crashes....thinking.........should I just dump google chrome? Is it really worth it? I can't seem to get through anything....video has just gotten to be a CHORE.
Shock wave flash plug in has been crashed for a couple of months now, can anyone help me get it "un-crashed"?
reinstall shockwave and flash
on chrome type
on the right side click on Details
scroll to Flash, then deactivate the ones that comes with chrome and let only macromedia.
Try this: worked for me.
Happens every day on Chrome, but NEVER,NEVER happens with Firefox!!
Thank you for sharing your solution!

I SWEAR....) Its gotten to be annoying & stressful.Im not wasteing my time on google chrome no more...so tell me which ones do u suggest i try???
I'm fully updated on all the flashes and shockwave still crashes. So Wrong!!!
one of the very common causes of this is ....that
some times opening / running too many windows / tabs with embedded flash content can also crash the flash plug in .
if you are multi tasking and the CPU is already overloaded ( like during media conversion ) , playing / running a single flash content , like a Youtube video , can also cause the plugin to crash .
why ? because , Flash itself is cpu eater ..
just check your cpu load through task manager when the plug in crashes
I just noticed that, you don't need to update chrome, automatic update is set by bedault on chrome.
All you have to do is, re installing/updating flash player after removing the browser cookies.
Hello, here is a link for you:
Go to Tools -> About Google Chrome and let it check for updates. Alternatively you may want to try the Chrome Beta which is reported to have fixed a lot of Flash's crashing.
update flashplayer http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
You only have to check for updates in chrome since Flash is built in.
See the link by @FIDELIS1:disqus
you need toreninstall flash.
actually this problem occurs on my updated version of chrome also.
When I refresh it, or open the link in a new tab..it starts working again.
